The Test series between Pakistan and New Zealand looks like following the similar fate as it did for Pak v Australia. Kiwis replaced Kangaroos but the result is going to be the same. Pakistan’s adopted home seems to give them real home advantage as well and it all looks like a familiar subcontinent domination.
Pakistan shouldn’t have any difficulties in pocketing this Test series as well. Kiwis can’t do anything better than Kangaroos.
Pakistan are looking well settled after 1st day. Mohammad Hafeez & Ahmed Shehzad have given Pakistan a solid start and it looks like they are going to score one more 450+ score. Script looks familiar, Pak will score 450+ and declare then they will let their spinners do the rest of dirty work and force Kiwis to follow on or bat one more time score quick runs, make some more records of fastest in Test Cricket and let spinners finish it off on Day 4.
This test match and the series doesn’t look too exciting for betting. Odds will not increase for Pakistan and we will have very less profit margin.
The best strategy is to start backing Pakistan whenever their odds increase at Betfair. You can also wait for few quick wickets to get higher odds. After 3rd day asses the match again and either lay Pakistan at lower odds to green up or start applying Tarazu between Pakistan and Draw.
Either Pakistan will win or Kiwis can pull off a brave draw. Pakistan losing the match is ruled out at this stage and it will be almost impossible if Pakistan score 450+.
